WRINKLE CEMENT

STRIVECTION INSTANT DEEP WRINKLE FILLER – This brand has always made me skeptical. All their claims are pretty extreme. I bought a tube of the original wrinkle cream and my skin broke out in a rash. I think I was reacting to the peppermint oil and I had to return it to Nordstroms. They may spend a lot of money on marketing and PR, but it certainly doesnt go into their packaging, which is a real turnoff for me. I tried this for 2 weeks and did not see the “instant” effect I was promised. It is also not particularly pleasant or luxurious to use either. I also found that it to be quite sticky and it seems to curl up like rubber cement on my face. I was not impressed.

FINAL VERDICT – SYC (SAVE YOUR CASH) – $59 for a very small tube of this self-named wrinkle filler, and I got better results with Olay Regenerist for less than half that price.  Not worth it.


REVISITING RETINOL

DERMADOCTOR POETRY IN LOTION INTENSIVE RETIONL 1.0 – I have long been a big fan of retinol for its anti-wrinkle benefits.  Retinol sometimes gets a bad rap because it can cause irritation in some skin types, especially when used without the benefit of sun protection. This variation is particularly non-irritating.  The intention is to offer retinol in a strength that actually works but in a delivery system that is easy to use for most skin types. I think they nailed it! The studies on retinol have proven its age reversing effectiveness, and have also shown that it helps with sun spots and discoloration with continued use. Even if you are prone to sensitivities, if you use this in small doses, applied sparingly to a clean, dry face, every other night, you can gradually bump up your usage to daily.

FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – Nicely formulated product with good skin benefits.
